TASTING NOTES (by Whiskyfun.com)
£350 at 42% vol. It better be great. Sadly, it’s been finished in oloroso butts (they say ‘finessed’, W&M’s equivalent to Bruichladdich’s ‘aced’). Colour: dark gold. Nose: the problem with Dalmore is that it’s very fine spirit, so you just cannot say much bad about them. In fact, I find this combination of tobacco, earthy tea, marmalade, dried pears, chocolate, and crystallised quince just super-lovely. Perhaps not £350-lovely, but lovely. Mouth: perhaps a wee bit ‘dilettante’, because of the low strength, but Dalmore’s oranges and chocolate are singing a rather perfect tune. Add a little honey, cappuccino, perhaps drops of calvados, and you’ve got a good idea. Also notes of juicy fruitcake (not the heavy black ones). Finish: medium, fruity and juicy, with a chocolaty and coffee-ish backbone. The oranges are back in the aftertaste, together with a touch of oak. Comments: just classic. Would love to try this fine juice at 50% vol. (but hey, not at £550!) SGP:551 - 88 points.
